The Clinton-Hsu Tapes
Reader discretion is advised; contains sickeningly cloying adoration of a convicted, fugitive con artist:
Hillary Rodham Clinton gushed to disgraced Democratic fund-raiser Norman Hsu that he would "single-handedly" help her win the presidency because nobody "has been more loyal and been more effective" in landing donations.
"Norman, it's Hillary! What am I going to do with you, Norman? You're working so hard for me that I, I just don't even know what to say anymore," fawned then-Sen. Clinton in a taped voice message to Hsu, who -- unbeknownst to her -- was illegally funneling thousands into her war chest.
"I've never seen anybody who has been more loyal and been more effective and really just having greater success supporting someone than you," said Clinton on the embarrassing tape -- played during the kickoff of Hsu's campaign-finance fraud trial yesterday in Manhattan federal court.
"Everywhere I go, you're there. If you're not, you're sending people to be part of my events.
"You know, we're going to win this campaign, Norman, because you single-handedly are going to make that happen.
"I hope to see you again soon," Clinton purred. "Take care, my friend. Get some sleep, slow down for a few minutes. We're going to get to the end of the first quarter, and then we can all take a little rest. "Lots of love. Bye, bye."
After Hsu's illegal antics came to light, the red-faced Clinton campaign returned $850,000 in donations he had steered her way.
